Have you ever had a best friend that you talked to every single day? You know, that friend in Junior High who you spent nearly every waking moment with, and on the weekends took turns staying over at each other’s houses. This is the friend you could talk non-stop with and never run out of things to say. Or sit for hours not speaking but simply singing along to albums played on the record player. Carole King; America; Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young . . .Yes?
Then slowly your talk times dwindled, once a week, every other week, until finally they tapered down to almost nothing. You went on with your life and she went on with hers.
Maybe you eventually reconnected on Facebook and you even hit the “LIKE” button on her shares from time to time. When you see her posts you think fondly of her and your shared memories make your heart smile but you wonder, “If we got together today, would we even have anything to talk about?”
Friends, that’s kind of how I feel about y’all. It has been so long since I’ve written anything here and so much has happened in my world that I wonder if you are still out there waiting for an update.
Long blogging breaks are the mark of death to a blog, or so I hear.
Today I’m hoping you’ve seen this post come through your email or across social media and clicked on the link, if only out of curiosity.
I’m overflowing with excitement at the chance to catch up with y’all but today I’ll leave with with some pictures of our new lake house. We downsized and it is a very different style from our Southern Colonial so we’ve been doing a lot of house-whispering. Moving things in and out and letting our new house speak to us about what style suits it best.
These are outside pictures and, though we’ve done a lot on the inside, I think it will be a work in progress for quite some time as we go slow and take a lot of time outs to enjoy the nice weather and the lake life.
I hope y’all will come back to read my upcoming posts and hear what’s been happening during my extended absence from this blogging space. I know there are some of you I’ll reconnect with right away and we’ll feel like we’ve never been apart. Others of you may not like the new style I’ve chosen to decorate with or may not be interested in hearing about my God adventures and the “new thing” He is doing in my life. I hope though, that curiosity will win out 😉
Huge blessings to all who took the time to read this today. See ya’ soon 🙂
